Does coding an acceleration profile make a noticeable difference in the accuracy of the create? (vs just going at a constant speed with get_create_distance)

Well... sort of

The problem with the create is that there is a small lag between the CBC and the create. You could fix this (somewhat) by going slower before you stop. That way you would overshoot less. If you want optimal speed, start going the desired speed instantly, but slow down gradually.
